Absolutely delicious! I just cooked this for dinner for my entire family and they all enjoyed it! I will be sure to make this one again!

Yum Yum indeed Abby! This soup is nothing short of spectactular! The only things I changed were to use six cloves of finely chopped garlic and as the consomme and stock contain quite a bit of salt I used a salt-reduced soy sauce and didn't season with any additional salt. I think both those changes were worthwhile for anyone who's not a real salt fiend. The aroma while cooking is great, I think I've just had the longest 30 minutes of my life...
